2012 VW Beetle at the New York Auto Show


Once the music subsided, VW USA CEO Jonathan Browning stepped on stage to present a black and red Beetle on display and address the media with enthusiasm regarding the company’s pride and joy. Since Ferdinand Porsche designed the first “People’s Car” in Europe in the mid 1930s VW has sold 23.5 million Beetles worldwide. Yes, this is the same Porsche that makes the 911 and Panamera.
